On Losing the Soul (July 1995)
Essays in the Social Psychology of Religion
Richard K. Fenn - Editor
Donald Capps - Editor

Religion and Practical Reason (October 1994)
New Essays in the Comparative Philosophy of Religions
Frank E. Reynolds - Editor
David Tracy - Editor

“It is exciting to read this kind of intellectual adventure in process. The material is at the cutting edge of an aspect of contemporary religious studies.

Wholeness Lost and Wholeness Regained
Wholeness Lost and Wholeness Regained (August 1994)
Forgotten Tales of Individuation from Ancient Tibet
Herbert V. Guenther - Author

This book deals in narrative form with the theme of recovering lost wholeness--with the perennial question of beginnings and what role a human being must play in order to find meaning in his or her life.

"Guenther is, in my opinion, one of the most exciting, most thought-provoking, and most learned interpreters of Buddhist philosophy and psychology in the world. I like the way he draws on the experiential vocabul...(Read More)

Myth and Modernity (July 1994)
Postcritical Reflections
Milton Scarborough - Author

"This book is an important voice in the current debate about the implications of pluralism, relativism, and nihilism for the culture and for the educational enterprise. But the fundamental contribution of the book is its hypothesis about how we think." -- William Elford Rogers, Furman University

This book surveys selected modern theories of myth from philosophy, religion, anthropology, sociology, and psychoanalysis to demonstrate a common com...(Read More)
 
 
Transpersonal Psychology in Psychoanalytic Perspective
Transpersonal Psychology in Psychoanalytic Perspective (July 1994)
Michael Washburn - Author

"The author has an original theory of human development and self-actualization first expressed in outline form in his Ego and the Dynamic Ground and in this book presented in its fully developed and mature form. It is now more impressive for the range of materials it integrates, for the clearness of its thought, and for the way it brings into unity Freudian thought and the highest experiences of the great mystics of both West and East." -- H...(Read More)
 
 
Dual Allegiance
Dual Allegiance (June 1994)
Freud as a Modern Jew
Moshe Gresser - Author

"Gresser weaves an immense amount of specific, detailed information into a fascinating argument that is of great interest to anyone interested in Freud as a person and not just as a thinker. In doing so, the book adds another dimension to the understanding of Freud's connection with Judaism. It pulls together a number of contributory elements in Freud's experience of his own Jewishness and articulates them particularly in connection with his views...(Read More)

The Catholic Church Confronts the AIDS Crisis
Mark R. Kowalewski - Author

This book examines the Roman Catholic Church in the United States as it responds to the AIDS crisis and persons with AIDS from a critical sociological perspective using organizational theory.

"This topic is significant for two reasons: (1) AIDS and the Church's response to it will continue to create conflict and force issues regarding moral deliberation to the forefront of theological ethics; (2) the Church's use of power and its openness to...(Read More)
 
 
Fundamentalism, Mythos, and World Religions
Fundamentalism, Mythos, and World Religions (October 1993)
Niels C. Nielsen Jr. - Author

"It is a very readable account that places in perspective one of the timeliest issues in religion in our time. It draws on the finest scholarship, distilling from it the essential theories and data, and makes it intelligible to the general public." -- Harold H. Oliver, Boston University School of Theology

"Nielsen handles 'mythos' and 'myth' quite fairly, with evident awareness that fundamentalists will reject the term an...(Read More)
